Where you'll study

Hull Campus

About the course

The Humber region is rapidly emerging as Europe’s renewable energy capital, with engineering giant Siemens and its partner Associated British Ports investing £310 million in a wind turbine production facility at Green Port Hull, creating a range of rewarding positions for talented engineering graduates. The University of Hull is renowned for producing students with real-world, hands-on experience, and this highly practical course will provide you with the specific engineering knowledge and skills, along with the expertise on energy management and environmental impact, you need to forge a career in this rapidly expanding and exciting sector.

Combine this with the opportunity to boost your employability by spending your penultimate year either applying the theory learned in previous years to real life projects on industrial placement, or by studying at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Asia, North America or Australia. The quality of the student experience here continues to resonate with undergraduates: mechanical engineering courses at Hull were rated in the top three among northern universities for student satisfaction in the Complete University Guide 2015.

Future prospects

Prospects for our engineering graduates continue to be excellent, and many receive firm offers of employment even before graduating. A report from industry body EngineeringUK highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers in the engineering sector – meaning that suitably qualified engineers have rarely been in higher demand.

Your career prospects are enhanced by our close collaboration with the industry to ensure that our course meets the requirements of potential employers. You will also benefit from a wealth of advice, information and guidance provided by the University Careers and Employability Service, both during your degree and after graduation. Unlike most universities, we do not impose a time limit after which careers support is withdrawn.

With regard to career-entry salaries, engineering graduates (along with those from mathematical sciences, technology and architecture courses) are second only to medicine and dentistry graduates*. Chartered Engineers enjoy significant pay rises that continue to outstrip the cost of living.
